Could anyone advise which Apache module is required by Drupal system?


The most common enabled module (or installed if not available) is mod_rewrite which helps your site have nice and clean urls. But even this isn't really required ... you can live without it but your site won't have nice links instead they will look like : www.example.com?q=node/12345. If PHP is working than that means that you have the necessary config to run Drupal.


I think you really only need (these are PHP extensions): mbstring curl gd mysql mcrypt jpeg png xml

...but not completely sure. my configuration above suits me fine. not sure if it can be of any help. If you using php as a module in apache, you can eliminate the fastcgi part.

    The first items you have listed are PHP extensions, not Apache extensions, correct? – Lester Peabody Feb 2 '12 at 13:32
